Healy: Up for the fight
David Healy has rejected speculation over his future at Fulham saying he is happy to fight for his place at Craven Cottage.
Fulham's signing of Bobby Zamora and their pursuit of Everton's Andy Johnson has raised question marks over Healy's future at the club.
However, the Northern Ireland international insists he has no plans to move on and is determined to win favour with Cottagers boss Roy Hodgson.
"The season hasn't even started yet for Fulham and already speculation is growing about my future at the club," Healy wrote in his column in the Belfast Telegraph.
"We have brought in new players, including strikers, and there has been talk that I may struggle to make it into the first team.
Happy"Well, I want to say here and now that I am more than happy to stay at Fulham and fight for my place.
"I do not intend walking away from a battle.
"I proved last season when things weren't going well and I wasn't playing that I was willing to knuckle down, work even harder in training and that paid off with me getting back into the manager's plans for the final weeks of the campaign.
"Now my aim is to start the coming season just like I did 12 months ago - scoring goals. And then the plan is to kick on and have a successful campaign.
"In an ideal world, I would be playing every week, but every player wants that."
